Matthew 6:
25 "That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn't life more than food, and your body more than clothing?26 Look at the birds. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren't you far more valuable to him than they are?27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 28 "And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing,29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? 31 "So don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?'32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.33 Seek the Kingdom of God* above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. 34 "So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today.

I love these verses. With everything that has happened in my life in the last couple of years it seems like one thing after another. Seems like it will never stop. It may not seem like alot but when all the little things start piling up on top of everything else it leads me to emotional breakdowns and worry. I love verse 34. What control do we have over things of this earth and what is the use of worrying?? I love the saying "Worry is like a rocking chair". I'm a big worrier I admit it. I hate not knowing certain things. I hate just not knowing. But I have to be reminded I am not in control. I have to leave it to the One who is even though that is sometimes not easy. I watch people around me. Craziness in not knowing and watching those people who do not have Christ to lean on... wow what a bumpy road for them. I thought I got stressed but at least I have a hope in someone who is bigger then my problems. Some of the people I watch send there health, marriage, additudes, friendships into utter disaster. It's amazing to me how people do the things they do without God to lean on. Is worrying worth it??
